We help farmers to change their production method to a sustainable agroforestry system. Instead of one crop like corn or cocoa that needs too much water and chemicals, and just exhausts the soil, we show farmers how to grow multiple types of crop together that support and strengthen each other and improve the condition of the soil.
reNature Foundation provides information, guidance and supports local authorities, cooperatives and farmers in setting up a sustainable agriculture in the form of agroforestry. We want to restore nature by protecting nature and regeneration farm land through agroforestry.
Some things we cannot change.
We promote the use of sustainable agricultural practises, called Agroforestry systems. It is characterised by blending multiple trees, shrubs and crops and even livestock that reinforce and complement each other, thus achieving more variety of yields and the natural balance in our ecosystem. We restore nature through agriculture.
We bring together Agroforestry specialists and farmers all over the world to restore nature through an inclusive farming approach. We restore degraded landscape by designing a location specific Agroforestry system to bring back a healthy ecosystem and soil that will provide food abundance for future generations.
We can change the way we produce food.
reNature Foundation is founded by Marco de Boer and Felipe Villela. They met at the TFF Summit where their mutual passion to help people learn and grow became clear. Felipe has a background in agroforestry and Marco has experience as strategic and creative director.
reNature Foundation realises agroforestry projects around the world. With our projects we focus on setting up Model Farms, provide Education and do Research.
From the rainforest in Brazil to islands in Indonesia the foundation brings back nature in food production. All running projects are carefully documented on our reNature Foundation Projects.
The last step to set up an agroforestry system is working on the land and enrolling the farm design. This means manual labor. reNature Foundation is supported by a community of volunteers who help with the execution of the plan. A part of the funding will be used to house and feed the voluntary team.
